Eckersley Band set to give it all

Adam Eckersley in action.

SINCE its official debut at the 2013 Tamworth Country Music Festival, the Adam Eckersley Band has had a steep rise in popularity.
Now is the chance to see what all the fuss is about when the band appears at the Hallam Hotel next month.
Hearing the Adam Eckersley Band crunching through nimble rockers, fiddle-led stompers, reflective acoustic tunes and blistering country-rock will remind music lovers of the broad church that is known as Country today.
The musicianship, coupled with the gravelly emotive Eckersley vocals, makes clear why AEB is setting fire to the pews.
Having just won the 2015 Golden Guitar Award in January for New Artist of the Year, Eckersley also picked up a prestigious APRA Award for Country Work of the Year for his hit single Give Her the World.
The band has also been chosen for Commercial Radio Australia’s coveted spot on the 2015 Global Artist Showcase for CMA Music Festival in Nashville in June.
It seems industry and fans alike have come together with their mutual acclaim for Eckersley whose roots are, of course, impeccable.
He writes what ZZ Top might call “beer-drinking, hell-raising,” great music – learned from many years of touring both the US and Australia constantly.
The indisputable truth is that Eckersley and his heavily bearded band of cohorts will play and say what comes from their hearts and souls as long as there’s juice in the van and strings on the guitars.
See the band perform at the Hallam Hotel, Princes Highway, Hallam, on Thursday 24 September.
